president mohammed morsi in a few light. no matter how the truce plays out, his reputation has been enhanced. paula newton looks at the winners and losers in this conflict. >> reporter: however crude the calculation, especially amid the civilian casualties, there are winners and losers in this truce, and they are already reshaping political alliances in the region. we begin in egypt and president mohammed morsi clearly underestimated his handling of what a mine field of competing interests has given him much needed political capital in both the arab world and the united states. >> puts a civilian president in egypt perceived as a weak leader has much, to everyone's surprise, delivered. >> reporter: then there's israel and its tenacious prime minister benjamin netanyahu. after israel targeted and killed hamas's military leader, he launched air strikes hitting more than 1,500 targets in gaza, dismantling some of hamas's arsenal of weapons. israel had a successful combat debut of iron dome. u.s.-funded defense shield that kept dozens of rockets from hitting israeli civilians. the counter point

got the egyptian president, mohamed morsi to be the address if hamas breaks the ceasefire and begins firing rockets into israel again, that egypt will be responsible, and will be held responsibility, they have taken responsibility, but this is a verbal agreement, this is not a written agreement, there is no implementation mechanism in place, this is really just a cooling-off period. to see if negotiators can really get at the root issues that are the smuggling tunnels for weapons coming in to the gaza strip, many from iran and the sinai desert, and whether hamas will be disarmed in the end. lou: the stubborn choice for both, palestinians and the israelis, the right to govern themselves, versus the right assurance guaranteed security. how surprising is it, to you, that israel would agree to this ceasefire on the same day a bomb goes off in tel aviv? >> well, it was quite surprising to me, lou, last time there was a terror attack in tel tel avivs who, 006, was in 2006, i remember, i was covering those bombings, so, usually what would happen after such an incident, israel would respond,

air force one and speaking to mohammed morsi who received high marks for his constructive role in the cease-fire, although a critic offered this praise. >> i think actually it may be president obama who gets more credit here. i think he pressured both egyptian president morsi and prime minister netanyahu to come to this deal, because i think he was afraid that the conflict would expand. >> today, morsi granted himself far reaching powers, placing all of his decisions, past and present above judicial oversight and protecting the islamic dominate panel of the constitution. although morsi is a member of the brotherhood, padilla is denouncing peace offerings, and says that jihad is mandatory for muslims and calling on them, quote to back your brothers in palestine. a former push administration official says that mr. obama must be helpful and attentive to the middle east, but that only goes so far. . >> he can't infuluence parties that do not seek agreements between themselves because the agreement is only as good as the parties themselves. and if one feels they have the upper hand
-fire deal brokered largely over the phone. president obama and the president of egypt, mohamed morsi, apparently making a real connection to stop the carnage. i want to begin our coverage here of the very fragile truce with arwa damon live with us this morning in gaza city. arwa, i think i hear horns honking. is the celebration there continuing where you are? >> reporter: it is. although the crowds have tapered off a little bit. but it is pretty incredible when you look at the street down below us and compare it to what the situation was like 24 hours ago, when you would hardly see a single person outside and most of the shops were shut. you can see very close to where people were gathering, celebrating what they're calling a victory. just one of the many locations that were bombed during this most recent conflict. that was, in fact, a residential home. the israelis, when they struck it later on, saying that they believe that it was being used by a senior hamas commander as an intelligence operations center. but people, ever since the cease-fire was announced, were taking to the stre
this country a corner stone of regional stability and peace. >> seemingly unexpected leader was egypt's mohamed morsi, a man we've seen at rallies where egyptians chan egyptians chanted we are hamas. it's an impressive feat and the first time that israel has ever negotiated with an islamist government. but there are some shady things about the deal. according to an israeli newspaper, neither side officially signed penned to paper on the cease-fire agreement which raise sometimes questions about it. and here's what we know is in the verbal deal. israel has agreed to hold its fire and end attacks against top militants and this is important, promise to look at ways to ease its blockade of the gaza border. hamas agreed not to strike any israeli targets and agreed there is no passage of weapons into gaza and to insure other palestinian groups in the gaza strip stop their attacks. if you're shaking your head that some of these things are very tall order, well, you're right. later "out front" we have the key players, israel's foreign deputy minister and leerd of the plo to the united states. they will
-fire deal brokered largely by president obama and mohamed morsi, apparently making a real connection to stop the carnage. we'll have our coverage of the cease-fire with arwa damon, who's live this morning for us in gaza. and arwa, we see the flags flying, the honking, the streets lined with cars. is it still the same situation right now? >> reporter: it most certainly is. we can give you an idea of what the street below us looks like, as masses of people following thursday midday prayers here are gathering in front of one of the government buildings. we've been hearing the speeches, listening to the messages coming from the loud speakers as well. people very much declaring this a victory, although this is a city and a population that most certainly has paid an incredibly heavy price. just to give you an idea, next to where the crowds are gathering down this main road in gaza city are the remains of what was once a residential home that was attacked a few days ago. we were here when that strike took place. it was massive. it shook the entire neighborhood. and so whilst on the one hand people
this has played out particularly, clearly mohamed morsi playing a pivotal role here. how is egypt calling the shots in terms of the way the palestinians are reacting? >> reporter: well, on the one hand, one needs to remember when it came to trying to mediate deals between these two sides, egypt has always played something of a pretty critical and central role. what has changed now is the dynamics between egypt and israel after the arab spring, and after the fact that hosni mubarak, who was a staunch ally of the west and is no longer in power. and now the egyptians became an entity because of the fact they are led by the muslim brotherhood, became an entity significantly closer to the hamas leadership here in gaza. that really changed a lot of the dynamics and the way we've been seeing things play out on the ground. the dynamics of what is transpiring that led to the cease-fire, we'll have to wait and see if it holds. that is what has changed, most certainly, egypt, given the fact it is a very young government, has at least for now proven itself. in one sense it has passed that critical te
was the first administration official to meet egypt's president, mohamed morsi, after his historic election. and now by elevating him to peace broker the u.s. is supporting a young islamist president who has struggled to consolidate control of his own country. >> did the u.s. have to make any deals or concessions to make this happen? >> peace comes with a price. morsi's help here is going to get egypt around $450 million in emergency cash. congress may release those funds in the coming weeks, according to administration source. house appropriations committee froze that money in september after the president had already pledged it. the white house is also going to ask congress to increase financing for israel's iron dome defense system. the u.s. gave israel about $3 billion in military financing this year. so the big picture an official at state tells me that this effort was about stopping the killing, not launching a mideast peace process for the obama administration. a senior israeli official told me give it one to two more days before you call this an agreement. isra
